Oregon Yellow Fever Certification and Application Information

Oregon Yellow Fever (YF) Vaccine Uniform Stamp and Vaccination Center Certification

Providers interested in giving yellow fever vaccine need to apply for a Uniform Stamp and must administer YF vaccine under the current YF vaccine standing order or pharmacy protocol.



These professionals can apply for a YF Uniform Stamp:

  • Physician (MD, DO)
  • Physician’s Assistant
  • Nurse Practitioner (with prescription-writing privileges)
  • Certified Immunization Pharmacist
  • Naturopath (ND)

 The stamp can move with the vaccinator but not across state lines. It is only approved for Oregon.

 YF Vaccination Basics


Why are the Uniform Stamp and Vaccination Center Certification required to give YF vaccine?

The Uniform Stamp allows the authorized provider to officially sign the traveler’s International Certificate of Vaccination, validating the record. The Yellow Fever Center Certification allows the authorized provider(s) to purchase and store YF vaccine.

How to apply for Oregon YF Uniform Stamp:

  1. Complete the required CDC Continuing Education Yellow Fever Vaccine Course. Participants can earn two CEU credits upon completion.
  2. If you have already completed the training but need to re-print your Certificate, go to, log into your account, and find the copy in the last column of the transcript of completed courses. For questions, contact the CE Learner Support/(CDC).
  3. Once the CDC training is completed, fill out the application form (pdf) electronically and choose “New Application” if you have never had a Uniform Stamp before.
  4. Mail or scan and email a copy of your CDC YF Training Certificate with your application. The application must be completed in full, signed and dated before being sent. You may mail or email to:

    Oregon Immunization Program
    800 NE Oregon Street, Suite 370
    Portland, OR 97232

    Note: The stamp is active for three years. Instructions will be sent out when the time comes for re-certification.

Please allow for a processing time of 2-4 weeks for the OIP team to approve your application, order the physical Yellow Fever stamp, and mail it to your location. If it does not arrive within this timeline, please send us an email with information about your YF application:
the name of the provider,
the work location,
the email address of the provider,
the initial date the YF application was submitted.

We will respond to you within one business day. Thank you for your commitment and patience.

Adverse Event Reporting

Online reporting is strongly encouraged. Please report clinically important adverse events that occur after vaccination of adults and children, even if you are not sure whether the vaccine caused the adverse event.

The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) accepts all reports, including reports of vaccination errors. Guidance on reporting vaccination errors is available if you have additional questions. If you need further assistance with reporting to VAERS, please email or call 1-800-822-7967.
